How to Make Panera Bread Buttery Shortbread Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine all ingredients; use hands to knead until ingredients are blended. Press dough into parchment paper covered 9x13 inch pan to about 1/4 inch thickness.(you may want to grease the pan slightly so the parchment paper does not slide around as you press the dough to 1/4 inch thickness) .
    Before baking mark rectangle cookie lines with knife to make them look more authentic Panera shortbread cookie look . Teresa suggests that you freeze these before baking.It's worth a try-thanks Teresa...
  2. Bake at 325^ for about 20 minutes check after 15 minutes, or until light and not browned. Don't over bake. Cut into cookie squares when cool.
  3. Note:
    Martha Martin suggests you roll out the dough and use cookie cutters of holiday shapes to make your cookies..Great idea Martha!
